Taking Precautions during Flu Season 

EFBC wants to keep your children and families healthy. We encourage good hygiene in all rooms, even the littlest one’s hands are washed. Teachers are alert to children who may be ill and will direct the parent to visit with the coordinator prior to being placed in a room.  If you find your child has been diagnosed with the flu, norovirus, or other contagious illnesses, please contact the Children’s Ministry office so we may alert other families. This will help keep families healthy and ready to come to church to worship.
